    Does anybody out there have any information on who I can refer a patient to for diagnosis of Charcot Marie Tooth disorder in Melbourne area? Is there an association or neurologist etc that deals with this specifically?

    Cheers

    There are CMT Associations in all States. They are represented by a national body:

    Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association of Australia Inc.
    Building 51, Concord Hospital
    Concord, NSW, 2139

    They are a fantastic resource for information on the disease and it is well worth all podiatrists getting involved. They run workshops where Pods can attend. An opportunity to see many people who have been sadly neglected or misdiagnosed.

    One of the experts on the disease in Australia is podiatrist Joshua Burns in NSW. He is at the University of Sydney.

    Also Brent Gray has been heavily involved in NSW.

    In regards to a neurologist there is probably no need to find a specific CMT neurologist although Dr John Merory at Austin Repat in Melbourne is involved with the CMT association and has dealt alot with people with CMT.

    Diagnosis is generally easy, if not just through physical assessment, it usually requires just nerve conduction studies which are performed by most if not all neuros regularly. There are gene tests but these are not typically required other than to clarify the type of CMT and maybe helpful for family planning, etc.

    Let us know if you need any more info.
